I've just gotten into the whole fair trade business, and I really wanted a fair trade backpack. I wasn't finding any that were big enough for school, but then I searched 'fair trade backpacks' on Google and found this website! It was big enough!! I received it 3 days later (even counting the weekend!) I put all of my folders, notebooks, and binders in it. When I put my first book in it, though, the right strap ripped as I was picking it up, so I had to carry it around for the rest of the day. I found a heavy needle and thread and reinforced both straps, and now the straps can hold all of my stuff plus one book! (I'm too scared to try to put all of my books in it.) So, I really love this backpack, even though it's more geared for lighter loads!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? No, but I was prepared for this since every rice bag is different!!
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I used it for my first day of school. When I put in one of my big books, though, one of the straps tore, so I reinforced both straps with a heavy needle and thread. It's great, but I'm too scared to carry more than one big book in it.
- How accurate was the sizing? Perfectly accurate! It has loads of room!
- Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
